No your dog is fine and it's ok to be around him.

Cats aren't harmful you just can't change their litter

It's safe to be around both dogs and cats. Just do not change your cat's litter box unless you wear a mask and gloves. Then make sure you wash your hands really well. If your dog is noisy, then your baby will not be easily woken up by the noise after he or she is born.
